My Daily Haiku #16 #2

Haiku – Senryu

Anthology

snake-1

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
walking down my street
friendly faces some are not
brexit hidden fears
^^^^^
gardening respite
a moment free no pressure
lay back enjoy life
^^^^^
suns rays exposed
misty ragged clouds reveal
beaming filtered light
^^^^^
distance closeness
not measuring how far
feel me kiss my lips
^^^^^

wren

^^^^^
silk life unravelled
now threadbare on bobbins wound
life spurned for the loom
^^^^^
butterflies a sight
once thousands gone not clever
habitat abused
^^^^^
amber orange glows
tree sap as old as life
trinkets on a beach
^^^^^
fossils o so old
nature past when it was bold
to its self succumbed
^^^^^

^^^^^
see that mayfly gone
flesh to flesh fish life sustained
river life balanced
^^^^^
human life one day
from egg to procreation
instinct would prevail
^^^^^
I open my heart
my poetry words set free
emancipation
^^^^^
bird song wordless joy
nature conducting in time
concertos unscored
^^^^^

^^^^^
bullfrogs croaking base
jenny wrens the melody
hark the world in tune
^^^^^
kangaroos boxing
duckbilled platypus mix up
nature having fun
*****
river calm and smooth
not a sound waters clear
barn owls silent search
^^^^^
scent drifts through the glade
aroma therapy sooths
relaxing tension
^^^^^

^^^^^
wistfully thinking
a hunter gathers dream
a hearty supper
